On January 12, the militants shelled the drone of OSCE SMM near Chermalyk village in Donetsk region. The Ukrainian side of the Joint Control and Coordination Center (JCCC) reported this on the Facebook page of the Joint Forces Operation.
‘Yesterday, January 12, according to an observer of one of the Joint Forces units, the mercenaries of the Russian armed formations shelled the OSCE SMM UAV, using small arms during the scheduled flight near the Chermalyk village, in the northeast of Mariupol,’ reads the message.
According to the data of the Ukrainian side of Joint Control and Coordination Center, such activities are connected with an intention to hide its fire activity in the direction of the Joint Forces units.
‘The Ukrainian side of the JCCC considers inadmissible and irresponsible the actions of the Russian-occupying troops in relation to the legitimate activities of the OSCE SMM patrols and qualifies the shelling as a blatant violation of the Minks Agreements,’ reads the message.
